    Grin Versace bag... Fake?

    Hi... Well, I'm new here and honestly I don't know much (almost nothing) about bags... but I'm trying to learn as much as I can... Well, I bought this bag in a second-hand shop in Japan... One that has many LV, Gucci and Coach... I didn't ask about authenticity because I take that it was authentic... but now I'm not sure... in fact I'm thinking it's fake... What can you tell me about this?

    OVERALL PICTURE (Sorry it's dark)



    ANOTHER OVERALL PICTURE (Dark again...)



    BRIGHTER OVERALL ONE



    FRONT DETAILS



    GOLDEN SUN



    UPPER ZIPPER



    LINING



    TAG



    BOTTOM



    MATERIAL



    Thanks for looking... The Golden Sun is just that... a Golden Sun (not a Medusa) but below the sun it says "Gianni Versace" in all the suns... Also the lining says "Gianni Versace" and the tag says that too... But it doesn't say anything about where it was made in (Made in Italy for example)... I may sound stupid but I don't know if that's a fake or a vintage bag... Please don't laugh... Anyway... I hope you can help me with this... And also... Do you have an idea what kind of material it can be made off... (leather, PVC, etc) And last thing... if that happens to be a fake... Is it too notorious? If so I may be forced to never use it... I don't want everybody know I've bought a fake... Thanks for looking... Doomo arigatoo gozaimasu!!!!

    I don't think the bag is authentic... sorry... you didn't ask anyone about the bag?? Reffering to it's authenticity?? Ugg... You have to be extremely careful when buying stuff, because people will sell you about anything, they'll even lie to your face just so you can buy something off of them, real or fake. And as for the material, what does it smell like??? Is it leather??? I has the ostrich print, but i dunno.

    Yeah, that ostrich skin doesn't look right. Here's what a real ostrich skin on a handbag looks like.

    If Japanese second-hand stores are anything like the ones here, the chances of getting a real designer purse are pretty slim. Goodwill in particular sells lots of fakes and they have relatively high price tags on them!

    Hi! Thank you for your answers! So I take than Versace never ever uses a GOLDEN SUN instead of a Medusa right? I'll be more careful next time! Thank you very much!
